simple CMS for Quark web projects

Anyone know of a way to achieve a simple CMS system for Quark web pages? ie. client can upload a text file which the web page calls on to populate a text box, then applies formatting.
any solutions?

One way would be to use xml files for your content areas and apply the formatting through CSS styles. Note: You'll have to use PHP to parse the XML content.The client only needs to modify the relevant xml document and upload it via FTP when they want to make a change.Here is a good place to start.http://www.csparks.com/XMLWithoutTears/ ... index.html

Thanks for that.. I don't think I can get this client to correctly modify an xml document.. that's asking for trouble.. I was hoping for a plain text solution within QXP.
